Russian democracy in the post-totalitarian era is intimately bound up with the fate of its representative institutions. In "Russia's Road to Democracy", Victor Sergeyev and Nikolai Biryukov assess why the Congress of People's Deputies, and the other newly elected institutions founded under perestroika, not ony failed to prevent, but also seemed to speed up and provoke, the disintegration of the Soviet Union. By studying the early history of the Congress, the book seeks insights on the prospects for democracy in Russia. Including substantial new source material, "Russia's Road to Democracy" presents an in-depth analysis with conclusions that contradict the hitherto prevailing theoretical assumptions.
